Drew, the Sartorialist is in Seoul this week. You can add "Sartorialist feature" to your e-bay modeling credentials.

Not considering anything
I am not considering anything except a CWU 45 or maybe a brown A2 or ohmygod somebody help me

Cwu is so good, get it.

So tempted to get a Black CWU 45 but I think it's probably wise for me to wait for my current 2 orders to arrive so I make sure I have sizing down, lol.  Also probably can't swing owning that many baller jackets at a time ):

Maybe even potentially missing out on the last call when it comes time?
Why not just stop overthinking,order now and have peace of mind instead of being filled with woulda/coulda/shouldas?

Because people like new things. And since the forum actually has some sort of impact on design improvements and drew actually listens to requests (at least the ones he actually believes will make the product better, as well as inputting his own ideas), new iterations are usually even more appealing than the original design. Who wants to buy something that feels outdated two weeks after ordering?

Everyone knows JC is around the corner. It wont be long before the announcements are made on what's going to happen, and I honestly don't mind waiting a few more weeks if that gives me a better idea of whats coming up. My mind hasn't changed or anything, I'm definitely copping a MDR, the question is just when for me. Don't see what's wrong with that logic.

I'm patiently awaiting my fishtail but it's getting harder as the temperature drops outside. Going for either the new MA-1 or the ribbed collar cwu in black lamb (or maybe goat) next. Plenty of time to order that though, as it won't be wearable until May or so.

in the same boat as you with the fishtail, had to grab a jacket to wear in the meantime because it went from summer, to leather weather, to fucking cold in about 2 weeks where im at

Montreal here, so we're definitely in the same boat.

New MA-1 is baller

Deets on price / materials drew?
post #24686 of 41360
All I care about is if the ma-1 has the classic windflap placket under the zipper. Pleated stitching running in parallel to the jacket lines, not the triangle stitch on the og bombers. That and I would like the classic nylon, but beggars cant be choosers and im sure the wool will be nice.

Wool MA-1 is baller, looks awesome

I've gotten more compliments on my laminate nylon MA-1 (quilted with webbing) then anything else

Can't wait to get my hands on this one
post #24688 of 41360
Also really want the hidden zipper placket
post #24689 of 41360
Given the price, wait times, and repro/designer alternatives, I don't understand why people are pushing the whole nylon/gore thing.

The wool MA-1 looks like it'll be one of those things that, in the future, will be a grail piece for the newcomers, and a source of regret for the dudes who had the chance but never pulled the trigger.

This would look great with a dress shirt before and after 6pm

I really want this.
